Many of you know Paul and know that he has fought kidney failure for years. He never did get a transplant and succumbed to his disease Thursday night 4/20/17.

Paul is the one who convinced Barbie and me to attend the UnRally and was my best riding companion. He rode very fast and was safe while doing it. Not many can do that. I doubt anyone will ever make the run from Wilmington, NC to Savannah GA as quickly as he and I did. The memories will stay with me forever. RIP buddy.


Old BMWs can be repaired.

Never had the pleasure of meeting Paul in person , but swapped a few Carolina stories with him via pm through this site. Thoughts and prayers for his family.

I met him at a couple of our events. He was a really nice guy, he will be missed.

Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, WOW, What a ride!

Wow! I just saw this. I'm gutted. He was a terrific guy. I knew he was struggling last I PM'ed him, but didn't know how bad it was, of course.

He will be sorely missed.
